Single Sign On in High Availibility
Posted on 2013-01-27
I am trying to setup SSO service in HA mode.
I did install SSO on 2 nodes SSO-A and SSO-B.
I am using a virtual appliance load balancer.
On load balancer, configured a virtual server with name as SSOHA.domain.com and assigned 2 IP addresses to it.
This virtual server has the 2 nodes added to it as a pool of servers..
I am trying to install Inventory service and when it asks for SSO server, I am providing it with virtual server FQDN i.e., https://ssoha.domain.com:7444/lookupservice/sdk
but this is not going through..
What confuse me is the SSL.
As each SSO server by default has a self signed SSL, and I rem from my previous single node (basic) installation of SSO that the Inventory service installation prompted me to accept the SSL cert of SSO server after providing the installation with the URL https://SSOsrv.domain.com:7444/lookupservice/sdk.
Now when I have these nodes behind the load balancer, the Inventory service is not able to make connection. (this is what think).
There are possibilities that I am going totally wrong.
Does SSO support hardware LB?
I tried to find something on google, not specific.
If it does support, what should be the generic configuration of LB..
do i have to import the SSL in LB?
cannot find vmware KB, except the one that shows config of a software LB.
I might have confused some of you guys, plz do ask to understand the scenario and help to find solution.
